I'm coming in late to the discussion, and haven't read all the many pages.
I don't buy the hypothesis in the video- at least not in the way it is described.
On the other hand,
It rings bells for me. It reminds me of a strange dream I had one day, which was one of those in which I was receiving a "lesson". A disembodied
narrator explaining thigns to me, and my seeing diagrams and illustrations.
One of the subjects that night was how evolutionary changes happen periodically in "leaps"- or times of quick changes, as opposed to gradual ones.
This is caused, I was told, by suddenly high radiation levels causing a lot of mutation, and environmental changes.
The kind of mutation an individual undergoes isn't random though- it is fashioned or directed by the consciousness... their intents, motivations,
desires. (this is the real woo-woo part)
I was told our physical bodies are formed by the consciousness anyway, but in between these periods, the collective consciousness has more influence
upon the basic shape. But during these periods, it is as if individual consciousness suddenly gets a boost and everyone gets to have a vote and put in
their two cents, and the ones which adapt best form the basic shape for the collective during the next period of slower, progressive evolution.
It said radiation, therefore, is not necessarily bad, it all depends upon what you do with it with your mind.
Now, what exactly the type of radiation was being refered to was not specified. But what was interesting about this is that it was the day before the
earthquake/tsunami/nuclear accident in Japan.
Ever since, i think about this when we mention the ongoing radiation that continues to spread into the ocean from that accident.
Radiation from sunlight could also be part of that.
The scientific part is that the fossil records show evidence of both slow progressive phyletic gradualism
as well as Punctuated equilibrium
. And radiation does cause mutation.
How consciousness does or doesn't play a part in that, is hypothesis of the more far fetched kind- such as this energy cloud- but at least it
doesn't pretend to be otherwise!
